Quentin G. Dupont, SJ

Quentin G. Dupont, SJ, 34, is a native of Lille, in Northern France. Though he earned his undergraduate degree in economics and accounting in 2002 from the Catholic University of Lille, Dupont was always interested in other cultures and traveled extensively as an exchange student during high school and college. While studying in California at Santa Clara University during his senior year, he became acquainted with the Society of Jesus and was inspired by the Jesuits there to consider a vocation to the priesthood. Although initially interested in pursuing a career in accounting, Dupont realized that his desire to help others superseded everything else. In 2003, after receiving a master’s degree in finance and banking from the University of Paris, he entered the Jesuit novitiate at Culver City, California. He earned a master’s degree in philosophy at Fordham University in the Bronx, New York, and was next missioned to Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose, California, where he taught French and religion for two years. At Seattle University, he served for one year teaching microeconomics and business ethics. In 2011, Dupont was missioned to the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, where he earned a Master of Divinity degree and a master’s degree in theology with an emphasis on moral theology. At his request, his diaconate ordination was held in France so that his family could be present, and he was able to preach at his hometown parish the next day. While serving as a deacon at St. Ignatius of Loyola Parish in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, Dupont was also the chaplain of the Boston College baseball team. He considers his time working with campus ministry in Madagascar, as well as his work with Jesuit Refugee Service in Paris, among the most meaningful experiences of his formation. Following ordination, Dupont will be missioned to teach finance at Seattle University. (California Province)
